Muhammad about dreams

The prophet Muhammad (570632 A.D.), the Arabian founder of Islam to whom Moslems believe the Koran was dictated by God, considered dreams to have vital significance, and to have some bearing on the matters of waking life. He would inquire of his disciples every morning what their dreams were, discuss their interpretations, offer his own, and then recount his own dreams. According to Nathanial Bland, writing in The New World of Dreams, "By [one] dream attributed to him, the Sunnis justify the still-disputed rights of his three successors; and the origin of a strife, political and religious, which convulsed the whole Muhammaden empire and threatened its destruction, and which still divides the followers of Islam by a schismatic and irreconcilable hatred, is founded on a revelation made to its founder Muhammad in his sleep." Some of the followers of Muhammad question whether his revelations occurred in dreams, arguing that such a highly evolved mind would not have a dividing line between the "conscious" and ''unconscious."
